On this special bonus episode of The Nurse Keith Show nursing career and healthcare podcast, Keith interviews Dr. Pamela Karagory, DNP, MBA, MSB, RN, CNE, ANEF, and Shannon McPeek, BSN, RN regarding Operation Happy Nurse, your new go-to resource for coping with the pressure that comes with being a real-life superhero.
Operation Happy Nurse officially launched in 2019, but the idea was sparked much earlier. OHN was founded by Shannon McPeek, a neonatal ICU nurse in her fourth year of service. At the start of her career, Shannon deeply suffered from work-related anxiety. It was spirit-crushing, affecting both her personality and health. She felt isolated and didn’t think anyone else could understand her struggles, but this couldn’t have been further from the truth. Many of her colleagues and friends, she learned, were dealing with similar mental health issues. This realization motivated her to kick-start this non-profit community to help the nursing profession battle work-related stress, anxiety, and depression.
Operation Happy Nurse is a grassroots movement made up of those who give themselves every day to care for you and your loved ones. Help us care for these lifesavers, caregivers, and badass humans in return. Your donation will go to developing content and providing personalized support and a stress-free user experience for each and every nurse. OHN needs your help to grow!
